    Really nice photos. You growing corn? I was thinking of doing some corn next year, do you have to pollinate them yourself, or just let nature take care of it? [​IMG]

    The corn is self pollinating, you just need to plan a few rows close together so they can get down to bidness. Most of my neighbors grow corn as well, mine is the tallest by far. I think it can be attributed to lots of chicken fertilizing with lots of chicken poop!
